Zion Lutheran approved for site development
Zion Lutheran Church is a step closer to moving forward with a planned addition to its existing property following the action Monday of the Hastings City Planning Commission.
The planning commission approved the church's amendments to its conditional use permit that includes the addition of a new church gymnasium and activities center.
The center will sit on the east side of the church's existing property and will include a stage, meeting hall, warming kitchen and restrooms. The additions will allow Zion Lutheran's church and school to have more space for plays, receptions, sporting events and meals.
"We've been planning this for a long time. We appreciate staff's help in getting things off the ground," said Dave Berens, a member of the church's building committee.
